Game freezed on start

Hello, I’ve been encountering an issue while trying to play a game on Citra Nightly. I have decrypted the files and I have done anything possible to load the games. However whenever I try to run the game it freezes on the beginning with a phrase saying: “the game is preparing to load, and additional data is being created”

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • You are running out of date drivers for your GPU. You need to install the most recent driver for your graphics card from NVIDIA’s website. Official Drivers | NVIDIA

updated the driver fully btw.

Please try running Citra as an administrator → Right click on Citra’s shortcut or citra-qt(.exe) and select Run as administrator. See if the issue remains.
